This Little Light
 
When it's late at night and a mom is dragging herself 'home' weary from spending the day at the
hospital holding her son's hand, helping him fight, the Ronald McDonald House can give her things that
perhaps no one else can: a home-cooked meal, a warm bath, a bed, and a shoulder to cry on.
Above all though, the House, her 'home away from home' gives her light.

As Stacy Halstead remembers it, 'the light at the Gatewood Ronald McDonald House
was always on.' And with it, there was always hope.

Back to school is a great time to teach your family the importance of volunteerism.
This month, we challenge you to plan a volunteer outing with your family at your local Ronald McDonald House.
